When it comes to electric vehicles, owners and operators understand that electric range can vary significantly – even on a day-to-day basis. This is due to several factors, including driver behavior, driving routes, and outside temperature.
But how much does the warm summer temperature actually impact electric vehicles?
Inside this “Impact of Hot Weather on Electric Vehicles” ebook, we take an in-depth look at vehicles we’ve monitored to determine just that.
Based on real-world data, we break down how auxiliary loads (ie. heating and air conditioning) directly correlate with the vehicle’s range, as well as discuss how the temperature outside in general affects the vehicle’s powertrain components and efficiency.
